South Carolina Should Embrace Compassionate Care For Veterans

Gary Hess, Founder and CEO of Veterans for Holistic Alternatives issued the following statement today, following Senate passage of the South Carolina Compassionate Care Act:

“We applaud the Senate vote and look forward to continuing the conversation with the South Carolina people. Lawful veterans and other patients with chronic illnesses should be able to consult with a doctor and have ready access to promising medicines. The stigma of cannabis must give way to the new reality – veterans and patients are having success with medical cannabis. Thirty-seven states now allow their citizens access. South Carolinians deserve the same medical freedom as their brothers and sisters-in-arms across the nation.”
